Even if Perry Como's world might've been racist, sexist,by today's politcally correct stanrds a l a Frank Sinatra, one obvious paramount difference---Frank can be marketed as much as the latest Nickelodeon show, while Perry [who wasn't much into self-promotion nor into being a bighsot, which of course was the gold key to the secret of his longtime success!] wasn't the Brooklyn bad guy type, if that's the right term, just a major superstar who glided into your home, at the flick of a switch [remember when tv ACTUALLY had them?].
And that Silver and GOld is "not U2's"[as one poster said./.]
Or Burl Ivesd's, though Perry could handle that one immediately.
SCTV, then Chris Guest [A Mighty Wind!] and Paul Herz [The American Pie franchise] standby Eugene Levy [the 2005 "Cheaper by the dozen"] is long famous for a SCTV Perry spoof, where he'd fall into a, well, Perry Como.
When Perry Como died in 2001 columnist Susan Ager noted that Perry wasn't the typical bighsot, even by his own era's standards, just the boy next who as I said, for just the movement of turning the set on to the right channell, right time, gently arrived into your living room for your enjoyment.:)
